Three Miles Up and Other Strange Stories Synopsis: CONTENTS: An Introduction by Glen Cavaliero/ Three Miles Up/ Perfect Love/ Left Luggage/ Mr Wrong. REVIEWS: “Three Miles Up is a superb little volume: it may only contain four stories, but every one is a highly polished gem, and the introduction by Glen Cavaliero is thoughtful and well-written. The quality of the book production is, needless to say, immaculate." - Reggie Oliver, All Hallows "Best remembered for mainstream novels of the middle class - realistic works which nevertheless hint of cosmic uneasiness - Howard's rare forays into the supernatural resulted in chilling expressions of terror and awe. Favoring painful themes of cultural displacement and alienation in an apathetic world . . . this is ghost fiction as it should be!" - Hellnotes "Tartarus Press is one of the finest small imprints devoted to reprinting lost titles in the supernatural field, recipient of a world fantasy award, and rightly so, in recognition of its splendid achievements in this area. It's enough to take a look at their last book: a collection of four strange stories by Elizabeth Jane Howard, beautifully produced and presented in an attractive, cute little format which reminds me somehow of breviary . . . So, if you're tired of disposable fiction to be forgotten the minute you close your book, if you want to read some high quality stories that will leave your mind delightfully uncomfortable, if you still appreciate the pleasure of having a nicely bound volume in your hands then you have to buy stuff like this. There are only 350 copies in print, so you'd better hurry. " - Mario Guslandi, Terror Tales. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
